Financial Modeling and Simulation

What is Financial Modeling Simulation?

Monte Carlo simulation can be used in financial modeling as a form of risk analysis. Though it’s not commonly performed, software such as @Risk, Palisade, and others can be used to analyze how the value of a business (in a DCF model) is impacted by over thousands of changes to assumptions in the model that follow a certain type of distribution.
